Two Chicago residents were charged in connection with robbery in south Evanston early Saturday morning.

Police were called to a home in the 1100 block of Madison Street for an armed robbery, according to a Monday news release from the Evanston Police Department. A 35-year-old woman told officers she was robbed at gunpoint by two people who left in a red vehicle headed west.

Officers arrested the two people — a 20-year-old Chicago resident and 33-year-old Chicago resident — in the 700 block of Dodge Avenue. They were both charged with one count of aggravated robbery, according to the release.

Officers responded to a call early Sunday in the 1600 block of Payne Street from a couple who reported that a person broke into their apartment while they were asleep.

A 24-year-old man who lived in the apartment “detained” the person — who was later identified as a 36-year-old Evanston man — until police arrived, according to the release.

The man was charged with one count of residential burglary, a felony.

There was no sign of forced entry and the resident was charged with one count of felony burglary, according to the release.
